A call today. Message to provider. Got her first vacc. Headache and nausea.

I asked her how long since she got the first vacc. 20 minutes. Say what? The more conversation I had with her, she was so nervous getting it I suggest maybe the headache was her angst at getting the shot. She acknowledge could be why she had an upset stomach. Fuckin' sad. She said no problems getting the flu shot, but this one she had trepidation. So sad, what the right did with misinformation.

1. sad to hear it, thank you for talking her through to the correct diagnosis

Anxiety from misinformation.

What is a message to provider? Do you work with a healthcare hotline?

3. yeah. I've had some real questions from the very first

about the self reporting and symptoms. Not that I discount that there were some symptoms - with some patients. But - if you 'prep' people for the shot with tales of, "knocked me out for 24 hours" - then is it any real surprise that a lot of tales of woe are going to be subsequently forthcoming? Self fulfilling ....

4. Well, I suppose that might be the case; but, as my board-certified neurologist explained to me,

reactions shortly after receiving the vaccine are usually due to other ingredients (I think the word he used was "carriers" ) that are in the solution.

(He said that if the reaction doesn't show up for ~24 hours, then it's probably due to the mRNA.)

I had neurological issues about 15 minutes after receiving each of my shots, which lasted in both cases for approximately 4 days. My neurologist said my reaction was probably due to the PEG in the vaccine. Coincidentally, I always have a reaction to cosmetics that contain PEG, which I hadn't mentioned to him.

I find it frustrating that, especially with women patients (as yours apparently is), many providers' first reaction is, "It's all in her head."

If it really was psychological, then why didn't she experience the reaction immediately? Why did it take 20 minutes?
